Putin's Troops Shoot Down Their OWN Helicopter in Ukraine

In a massive blunder, Russian forces
mistakenly honed in on another Russian helicopter. The Ka-52 Alligator
helicopter was flying over Russian soldiers in the Ukrainian southwestern
port city of Kherson when it mistakenly began firing at them. Vladimir
Putin’s Russian forces struck back and shot down their own helicopter – worth
an estimated £12million – in Ukraine, Ukraine’s General Staff revealed.

The Ukrainian military bosses
made fun of the self-inflicted attack and joked it was a “gesture of
goodwill” from the invading forces. Ukrainian forces claim a total of
three helicopters were flying over the occupied region of Kherson and started
to shoot at the Russian soldiers stationed on the ground. 

Amid intense firing, one of
the three helicopters crashed, dealing another embarrassing blow to Putin’s
men.

All that was left from the
plane was wreckage and smoke rising from the helicopter skeleton, footage by
Ukrainian forces shows.

Blunders like this one have
become more recurrent, with the latest one happening just last week. Russian
shot down its own £35million Su-34M fighter jet in Ukraine. In another mistaken
attack, Russian soldiers tried to hone in on the US-supplied HIMARS rocket
launchers but instead shot down a Russian bomber.

The attack comes as Ukrainian
forces have launched an operation to liberate Kherson. Presidential adviser
Oleksiy Arestovych has revealed Ukraine’s strategy to corner Russian forces
without giving specifics.

However, he maintained there
is a “certain plan” of the armed forces to “isolate [Russia’s]
military operations”.

Upping the ante, another
senior presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak said: “Occupiers should
learn how to swim across the Dnipro River (that borders the port city of
Kherson). Or should leave Kherson while it is still possible. There may not be
a third warning.”

Ukrainian troops are
multiplying strikes on strategic infrastructure like bridges to complicate
Russian advances. One of the latest bridges destroyed is the key Russian-held
Antonivskiy Bridge connecting Dashi to Kherson.
